OpenCorporates is a database which aims to gather information on all the companies in the world. The database currently offers information on 50 million companies in 65 different jurisdictions.

Information that can be found on OpenCorporates includes a company's incorporation date, its registered addresses and its registry page, as well as a list of directors and officers.

Government data relating to the companies featured on the database is also being imported.

The website also shows corporate groupings, to help you see which other companies are connected to the one you are investigating.

Data from OpenCorporates is also increasingly used as a basis for data visualisations, such as this one illustrating the control chain unfolding from Goldman & Sachs.
